I love turquoise; it reminds me of pristine sea and corals. I prefer this beautiful colour in gemstone jewelry and in sequin costumes with turquoise beads. So why it is that it is becoming rarer to find an authentic transparent blue turquoise in market. With increasing mining, the stones that were so sacred to one of the native Indian tribes of America – the Navajos are becoming increasingly uncommon.
A stone that comes in sky-blue color looks stunning in a mesh of grey and gold. Most popular as a wedding jewelry it intricately sits on a spider matrix of gold and silver with feathery touch of peacock. This piece of rare jewellery might have taken the goldsmith many years of hard work and dedication. It is worth thousands of dollars and the story behind this precious stone is timeless. It is but the anecdote of a culture and tradition that was present in American culture, a history of Navajos and their customs.
